Rising to the Occasion 

With the beginning of another 
semester, we are greeted with 
different classes, new syllabi, per- 
haps a new room and an opportu- 
nity to meet the upcoming chal- 
lenges of the year. For freshmen, 
they are entering a whole new 
world to explore while upperclass- 
men bring the experience and 
knowledge of years past into their 
everyday activities. 

Also new this year was the 
addition of our president, Dr. Ted 
Long and his wife, Betty, to the 
Elizabethtown College community. 
They have both graciously given 
their time and have repeatedly 
exemplified the E-town spirit 
through their involvement with 
the student body. 

With Dr. Long as our new 
leader, and the dedicated members 
of our faculty and staff to guide us, 
we will be able to face all of the 
challenges of the upcoming year 
and succeed. From sports to activi- 
ties, from residence life to academ- 
ics, each one of us, in our own way, 
will rise to the occasion and meet 
the challenges of both Elizabeth- 
town College and our personal

I! mil!! Occasion 

There's no doubt that college is a 
great place with many campus-spon- 
sored events, activities and organiza- 
tions to keep students busy when 
they aren't in classes. But there are 
also times when we just need to 
relax, hang out with friends or do 
something completely unrelated to 
academia. It is a chance to escape 
from classes and professors, books 
and studying. What students choose 
to do in these times are some of the 
most important and fun moments of 
their college lives. Weekends are 
great for this type of thing, as well 
as birthdays and holidays. 

So what else is there to do? How 
about getting off campus for a while, 
maybe to go out for a bite to eat or 
do some shopping? If there is more 
time available, everyone should take 
a few road trips in their life. Some 
people prefer to work out b y partici- 
pating in intramural sports with 
friends and hallmates, while others 
are perfectly content to congregate 
and watch "Must See TV." 

However students choose to fill 
their time, before they know it 
classes and finals are over and it's 
time to pack up and head home for a 
vacation, the ultimate time for stu- 
dents to have some time to spend 
however they choose.

the Jfiest Time of the ijear 

S*i s you sit finishing 
/ I your last final exam 
/ L of the spring sem- 
ester, thoughts of sun, surf 
and sand fill your mind. 
Wow, you think to yourself, 
another year has flown by 
and it's time for summer! 
You gather all your sacred 
belongings and pack them 
tightly into your car without 
leaving an inch of space. 
Choruses of "Have a great 
summer!" echo through the 
dorms as you venture to 
begin what is sure to be the 
best summer you've ever 

E-town students spent 
their four-month summer 
vacation in a variety of 
ways. Some baked their 
bodies at the shore while 
others worked to earn as 
much extra spending cash 

as possible. Some students 
stayed on campus to take 
classes or work while others 
traveled the globe, getting 
as far away from Elizabeth- 
town as possible. Still 
others stayed close to home, 
getting reacquainted with 
old high school friends. Of 
course, the summer would 
not have been complete 
without staying in touch 
with college friends— and not 
just via letters and phone 
calls. Several students took 
long, exciting and once-in-a- 
lifetime road trips. 

As the summer wound 
down, many students 
dreaded returning to classes 
while the rest couldn't wait 
to return for another year of 
good times at E-town.

Summer Vacation 

^rieindlij Competition 

For all those students 
with athletic desire outside 
of the varsity teams comes 
the widely popular 
intramurals. Over sixty- 
five percent of the Eliza- 
bethtown student body 
participates in the 
intramurals program. 

Intramurals offer stu- 
dents the opportunity to 
showcase their "overlooked" 
talents or to just have a 
little fun with their favorite 
sports. Some teams even 
included their favorite 
professors in the mix as 
added bonding experience 
between students and 
faculty. Men's basketball 
coach Bob Schlosser acts as 
the advisor to the 
intramurals program, 
overseeing all events. 

Intramurals are avail- 
able for just about every 

varsity sport on campus, 
but soccer and basketball 
received the most interest 
this year. Basketball had 
thirty-eight teams alone! 
Senior Mike Burke, captain 
of the champion soccer 
team, reflected on the sea- 
son by saying how exciting 
it was for his team to win. 
All championship-winning 
teams are rewarded for 
their efforts with official 
championship t-shirts. 

Intramurals also showed 
students using creativity 
when selecting team names 
and uniform fashion. For 
example, the "Fuzzy Na- 
vels" wore shirts with the 
navel area cut out. 

What it comes down to is 
good fun with peers and 
professors— and sometimes 
even a little exercise, too.

Being on the

was really cool 
because since we 
do everything 
together anyway, 
this just gave us 
an excuse to run 
around acting 

We weren't 
the best team 
according to our 
record, but that's 
not really the 
point anyway. 
The point is to 
have fun, and 
the Fuzzy Na- 
vels had more 
fun than just 
about anybody 
We played to-

and some of our

By the time Friday rolls 
around, everyone is usually 
ready for the weekend and a 
chance to relax for a couple 
of days. Actually, most 
people are ready for Friday 
as early as Monday or 
Tuesday. Finally it arrives-- 
time to sleep in, hang out 
and procrastinate. 

Some work off the stress 
of the week by going out to 
dances, clubs, coffeehouses 
and comedians. Others find 
a trip to the mall to be a 
sure cure for stress. Still 
other students, who are not 
up for all that running 
around, stay in the dorms to 
sleep in and then stay up 
late, order pizza and watch 
movies. Some make their 
rooms a bit more liveable by 
cleaning and decorating. 

There is always the 
option of having friends 
come to visit giving you the 

best of both worlds-college 
and home. Once every so 
often, there is a hall pro- 
gram going on-decorating 
the hall, dinner or a trip of 
some sort that gives hall- 
mates the chance to get to 
know each other better. 
And yes, unfortunately, 
there are even those times 
when you have to use the 
weekend to catch up on all 
the work you should have 
done all week long but 

While everyone may 
have different ideas of how 
best to spend their week- 
end, one would think that it 
is safe to say that Friday, 
Saturday and Sunday come 
as a welcome break to all, 
no matter how we spend

Marci James finds that Friday 
afternoons are a great time to catch 
a nap before the weekend fun 

During the 
week, I am very 
busy, running 
around between 
classes and 
meetings. I look 
forward to week- 
ends because of 
their slower 
pace, allowing 
me to do what I 
want, when I 
want. There is 
always some- 
thing to do on or 
off campus. 

Like all good 
things weekends 
must come to an 
end too. Sunday 
afternoon is the 
most dreaded 
part of the week- 
end because it 
means "Time to 
get back to 
work!" But, as 
the weekend 
comes to a close 
and another 
jammed packed 
week begins, 
thoughts of next 
weekend's plans 
already begin

Jeff Smith finds that a friendly 
game of intramural Softball with 
his hallmates provides both fitness 
and fun. 

During warm weather, even simple 
activities like frisbee give students 
a chance to exercise, as well as 
provide some entertainment for 


Varying Experiences 

Despite our busy lives, 
we all find some way or 
another to build some sort 
of fitness into them. We 
may not all be aerobics 
instructors, but many of us 
take the classes to stay in 
shape. We may not all play 
varsity sports, but many of 
us play on intramural 

Our campus provides 
many outlets for us to stay 
fit, both formally and 
informally. Varsity athletic 
teams get a daily dose of 
exercise in their practice 
sessions, for example. At 
the same time, there is the 
Body Shop for students who 
want to work out on their 
own time, doing the type of 
exercise they choose for 
themselves. Other students 
prefer grabbing a friend and 
going for a run through 
campus or into town. 

These are the more 
traditional types of fitness 

which we associate exercise 
with. Fitness is more than 
just gym class or doing 
situps, though; it provides 
an outlet by which we 
relieve stress and forget 
about schoolwork and 
problems for a while. We 
can work out alone, with a 
friend or with a group of 
friends. It can be struc- 
tured, such as intramurals, 
or spur of the moment, such 
as a pick-up game of basket- 
ball in the gym. 

When the weather gets 
nice, students seem to turn 
into fitness freaks on this 
campus. People are outside 
everywhere from morning 
till night, throwing a 
frisbee, rollerblading or 
going for a walk. No matter 
how, when, where or with 
whom we choose to exercise, 
E-town students always 
seem to find a way to bring 
fitness into our lives.

14 Off-Campus Eateries 

What's for Dimmer? 

I know how everyone 
hates it but sometimes you 
just can't avoid it-you have 
to eat someplace other than 
the caf. Your parents might 
come to visit and they insist 
on going out. Or it could be 
the weekend and you finally 
have the time to go. Maybe 
it is someone's birthday or 
another special occasion. 
Maybe friends are working 
there. More commonly, 
students just want a change 
of scenery from the caf and 
campus in general. 

Whatever the reason, 
there are lots of yummy 
alternatives to choose from 
nearby for all kinds of 
tastes and situations. Is it 
two in the morning on a 
weeknight and you are 
absolutely starving? Go to 
Taco Bell. Are you just 
generally short on cash? 

Again, try Taco Bell, or even 
McDonalds or Burger King 
(don't forget that 10% 
discount with your student 

If you want something a 
little nicer that is still near- 
by try Hoss's or Hennigan's. 
If you have the extra cash 
and you are willing to gas 
up the car, there are always 
a lot of choices in Lancaster 
or Harrisburg, such as the 
Olive Garden, TGIFriday's 
or Red Lobster. 

No matter where you go 
or why you go off campus for 
a bite to eat, it always 
proves to be a better option 
than baked mahi mahi at 
the caf. Unless it's chicken 
fingers for lunch, the caf can 
always be visited for a meal 
some other time. 

-Renee Gladfelter 

Kevin Gardiner isn't so sure that 
his lobster is really ready for eat- 
ing-it looks like it's still moving! 

Going off- 
campus to eat 
allows me to 
escape the 
stresses of life 
here at E-town. 
When our bud- 
gets allow us to 
eat off-campus, 
my friends and I 
enjoy going to 
the Carousel to 
share a milk- 
shake or our 
favorite place to 
dine, the Olive 
Garden. No one 
can beat their 
salad and bread- 

Overall, it is 
just a way to get 
off campus and 
enjoy time with 
your friends in a 
more relaxed 
atmosphere. The 
only part we 
dread is knowing 
we must come 
back to the work 
we left behind. 


Off-Campus Eateries 


the Lime of Terror 


Let's face it. Registra- 
tion really has gotten a bad 
rap on this campus. We 
moan and groan when we 
see those white preregistra- 
tion schedules in our 
mailboxes, thinking, "Didn't 
we just do this?" Much of 
the complaints come from 
the underclassmen who 
can't seem to find an open 
200-level core class to save 
their lives. Ah, the good ol' 
days! Once we are seniors, 
though, and can get into the 
classes we want, we're 
taking such specific and 
upper-level courses that no 
one but us would want to 
get in them! 

Waiting in the preregis- 
tration line for hours on end 
just to pick a number out of 
the little can giving you a 
registration time is always 
a treat. The person in front 
of you always draws a 
higher number than you. 
Or worse yet, you draw a 

good time, but you have 
class at that time, so they 
keep bumping you back 
until you're registering at a 
lousy time. It's never a 
tough class during that slot 
either; it's always one of 
those classes with no atten- 
dance policy where all the 
prof is doing is reviewing 
anyway. That just adds to 
students' frustration. 

After we go through all 
the chaos to pick our classes 
and we get a copy of our 
schedules, that's still not it. 
We come back each semes- 
ter to that maze in the gym 
where we fill out the same 
papers we've been filling out 
since fall semester freshmen 
year. Perhaps computer- 
based registration is some- 
thing E-town should look 
into. It seems to work at 
other schools, and maybe 
there would even be less 
student complaints— maybe. 
-Jodi Brandon 




Students spend a good part of their 
first day back on campus weaving 
their way through the maze in the 
gym for registration. 

Megan Forney and Colleen Kelly

to help the next student coming

Kim Corbitt and Jamie do a last 
minute check of the courses they 
want as they wait in line to 
schedule their classes. 

Reuben Kennel waits anxiously as 
his course requests are typed into 
the computer, to see if he can get 
into all of them. 

The moment of truth-like it or not, 
you're pretty much stuck with the 
classes on this little piece of paper. 

Unlike most 
students, I never 
really had many 
problems sched- 
uling my classes. 
I of course hated 
the waiting in 
line only to find 
out a class I 
really wanted 
was gone, but I 
found that if I 
had about thirty 
alternate courses 
listed, one would 
eventually fit. 
This was irritat- 
ing at first, but I 
soon learned 
that a wide 
array of classes 
gave me a much 
broader scope in 
my education. I 
choose a small 
liberal arts 
college with both 
its inherent 
benefits and 
downsides. I 
learned to look 
at this downside 
as a way to enter 
various intellec- 
tual areas.

lo Holiday Spirit 

the Most Wonderful Time 

Along with the ice cold 
weather comes, for most, 
one of the most exciting and 
joyous times of the year: the 
holiday season. Many stu- 
dents went all our with 
their spirit this year, deco- 
rating their rooms and halls 
with twinkling and blinking 
lights, bells, mistletoe and 
sometimes even real trees. 

Aside from the decorat- 
ing, many special activities 
occurred during the holiday 
season before we packed up 
and headed home for winter 
break. The ever-popular 
Candylane at Hersheypark 
provided a great opportu- 
nity for a screw your room- 
mate hall program, and 
there was plenty of time for 
a road trip to the mall to 
have our picture taken with 
Santa. On a more serious 
note, several E-town stu- 
dents helped out those less 

fortunate by volunteering at 
local soup kitchens or 
donating to clothing drives. 
While there is no doubt 
that Christmas attracts the 
most holiday enthusiasm, 
there is still plenty more 
where it came from. Hal- 
loween is widely celebrated 
with costume parties, and 
haunted hayrides are pop- 
ular among students. Ev- 
eryone looks forward to 
Thanksgiving dinner at the 
caf where the professors and 
College staff serve the feast. 
And we can't forget all the 
love birds as Cupid ap- 
proaches. Flower trucks 
grace our parking lots all 
day long. St. Patty's Day 
brings green, green every- 
where, and for the older 
folks, it was out to the bars 
to celebrate in true Irish

A holiday for me 
has always been 
a time of ex- 
treme happiness; 
a time to spend 
with loved ones. 
My favorite 
holiday is, and 
always has been 
Christmas. Be- 
sides the pre- 
sents, it is one of 
the few times 
during the year 
when I get to 
spend quality 
time with my 
family. Since I 
have lived away 
from home for 
most of the past 
four years, time 
spent with my 
family has come 
to mean a great 
deal more to me. 
A holiday is 
something more 
than a date that 
comes around 
every year. It 
can be any ordi- 
nary day in my 
life with the 
people who make 
it special.

Occasions for tnrichment 

For as small as Eliza- 
bethtown College is, we are 
fortunate to have been vis- 
ited by so many important 
and interesting speakers 
during this year's Wednes- 
day at Ten lecture series. 

The first program of the 
year was Convocation. A 
few weeks later Ambassador 
Alan Keyes spoke about the 
presidential election, among 
other things, prior to the 
arrival of presidential can- 
didate Bob Dole. Dr. Judith 
A.W. Thomas also spoke 
about the presidential elec- 
tion after the fact. The fall 
semester concluded with the 
Fine and Performing Arts 
Christmas Program. 

The spring semester in- 
cluded just as many exciting 
speakers and topics. Our 
nation's obsession with 
thinness was discussed by 

Dr. Jean Kilbourne. Don 
Eberly gave a lecture titled, 
"Return to Civil Society." 
Other issues included 
neo-Nazism and the indi- 
vidual and community in 
the Catholic tradition. 
Bobby Seale, co-founder of 
the Black Panther Party, 
spoke to the College, as well 
as Dith Pran, a Cambodian 
Holocaust survivor whose 
story is portrayed in the 
film, The Killing Fields. A 
college awards assembly 
and student recitals closed 
out the semester. 

Although they appealed, 
naturally, to different 
sections of the campus 
population, each of this 
year's programs was re- 
markable in its own way. 

-Renee Gladfelter 

Ambassador Alan Keyes addresses 
a crowded Leffler Chapel about 
some of the key issues in the 1996 
presidential election. 

Dr. Jack Fischel, a Millersville his- 
tory professor, discusses the neo- 
Nazi movement in America. 

A\j Wednesday at Ten 

After sharing his story with the 
college community, Dith Pran 
posed with Dr. Wes McDonald. 

The Connelly Foundation Lecture 
Series sponsored "Individual and 
Community in Catholic Tradition," 
delivered by Dr. William D'Antonio. 

Activist Bobby Seale, co-founder of 
the Black Panther Party, helped us 
celebrate Black History Month 
with his program. 

I've always 
seemed to enjoy 
the Wednesday 
at Ten programs 
more when I'm 
not required to 
go, so I was 
pleasantly sur- 
prised when I 
really enjoyed 
Dith Pran's 
program about

Holocaust for 
my Compara-

I had seen 
The Killing

tory class in 
high school, and 
I'm always in- 
terested in 
learning more 
about anything 
remotely related 
to the Vietnam 
era since my 
dad fought in 
the Vietnam 
War, so this was 
really exciting 
for me while

Wednesday at Ten A J. 

Happy ^irthdaij to LJoia 


Some people get more 
excited about an upcoming 
birthday than others, with a 
countdown to the big day 
and everything, while their 
counterparts let their 
special day pass without 

Whether you celebrate 
quietly with only yourself 
and a birthday card from 
home or you have a party 
with dozens of friends, 
birthdays at college are 
definitely unique for most 
people. Summer birthday 
students have it even worse 
in college sometimes-not 
only are their friends not 
around, but there isn't even 
a day set aside at the end of 
the school year for all 
summer birthday people 
like there was in elemen- 
tary school. College friends 

can get pretty creative, 
though, celebrating un- 
birthdays and even half 
birthdays (the date exactly 
six months before your big 

What makes birthdays in 
college so unique also is 
that classmates and friends 
don't just know when your 
birthday is like friends from 
home do, or classmates did 
because birthdays were an- 
nounced in school. The only 
way for friends to know now 
is for us to tell them. Since 
every family celebrates to a 
different degree, it is dif- 
ficult to know what to ex- 
pect from our friends. 
Speaking from experience, 
though, college birthdays 
can be just as memorable as 
those spent at home.

ZZ Birthdays 

E-town students weren't the only 
ones celebrating birthdaysthis year. 
Several students visited Walt 
Disney World, celebrating its 25th 

The one college 
birthday mem- 
ory I'll never 
forget is trying 
to organize a 
surprise party 
for a friend who 
didn't want to 
spend her birth- 
day alone. No 
matter how hard 
we tried, we 
could not get 
away to set up 
for the party. 
After a few 
"white lies," and 
a lot of last- 
minute running 
around, we 
finally had time 
to celebrate. 
Birthdays are a 
great time to 
spend with 
friends, whether 
it be a small get- 
together given 
by a roommate 
or a wild night 
on the town with 
an entire group.

^4 Television 

Learning, Relaxing and Jun 

Television could arguably 
be the greatest invention 
ever in a college student's 
mind. Although we aren't 
all the streotypical never- 
watch-TV-all-day types, 
television is important to us 
in many ways. Granted, 
now that we have access to 
cable, students are perhaps 
likely to watch a little more 
television. But we are also 
old enough to regulate 
ourselves and know when 
we have other things that 
need to be done. 

Not all television viewing 
is done for entertainment, 
either. The Weather Chan- 
nel happens to be one of the 
most-watched channels on 
our campus. Many students 
also watch the news, trying 
to get a glimpse of what's 
happening in the real world. 
Professors can now put 
shows and movies of their 
choice onto the campus 
channel for students to 

watch at a particular time, 
but we watch from the com- 
fort of our own rooms rather 
than in a classroom. Stu- 
dents who have done this 
have responded positiviely, 
so this method will probably 
be used more in the upcom- 
ing semesters. 

We also use our televi- 
sions for fun, and not just 
by watching the tube, but 
by playing Nintendo or 
Sega, which hook up to tele- 
visions. The games are fun 
and relaxing, and more 
often than not, they require 
little mental concentration, 
so we can zone out for a 
while and just push the 
buttons on our controllers. 

Some people say we 
watch too much television, 
and sure, some people do, 
but not everyone. Many of 
us use the television for 
limited entertainment, and 
some even use it for infor-

watch General 
Hospital everyday. I 
can't miss it. Like 
many students, 
when I prepare to 
schedule my classes 
I always try to keep 
my favorite shows in 
mind. If I am forced 
to have a class or 
even a meeting at 
that precious time, I 
make sure that my 
VCR is programmed 
to start recording at 
3:00 PM and stop at 
4:00 PM. 

Not only do I 
have to watch 
General Hospital all 
of the time, my 
mother takes the 
time to make sure 
that she mails all of 
the soap opera

On the Road Again 



There's no place like 
home, but it sure is nice to 
hop in the car for a road trip 
every now and then. E- 
town is not a "suitcase 
college" by any means, but a 
change of scenery is some- 
times just the cure for 
students suffering from 
exam, paper and project 

Some of the more usual 
road trips (not that any of 
them ever turn out to be 
ordinary! ) are those to visit 
friends at other colleges and 
universities. Many of us are 
really lucky in that our good 
friends from home only go to 
school a couple hours away. 
Tailgating at a Penn State 
football game is popular as 
well as a lot of fun-and who 
doesn't know someone up at 
State College? However, 
some students got really 
creative this year, heading 
to New York for a taping of 

the Conan O'Brien show 
and to Maine during Fall 

Just about everyone has 
taken a road trip before, 
and if you haven't, you're 
really missing out. Pack a 
bag with some clothes for 
the next day and take you're 
toothbrush, and you are 
pretty much set for your 
trip. It's one of the easiest 
things in the world to do. 

Road trips provide 
students a way to get off 
campus for a while, and 
away from all the mid- 
semester blues that drive us 
all nuts, so that we can 
relax for a while. The only 
negative is that sooner or 
later we have to get back 
into that car, or back on 
that train and return to E- 
town and our daily routines.

night, Conan 
O'Brien. Acquir- 
ing third row 
seats enabled us 
to earn a few 
seconds of air 
time during an

Bob Miller ex- 
plains, "I wish 
Conan was my 
dad." After the

models was 
when they didn't 
show up.

Road Trips 27 

txperience of a Lifetime 


I low does a trip to 
T — 7 France sound to 
/ L you? You could 
travel the country, see 
famous landmarks, meet 
new people and maybe even 
learn another language. Or 
maybe you'd prefer Spain, 
Germany or maybe En- 
gland. Whichever country 
you choose, one of the most 
convenient ways to get 
there is through the study 
abroad program we have 
here at E-town. 

Many students took 
advantage of this opportu- 
nity last year, including 
Trinity Deavor and Beth 
Foremsky, who went to 
France; Jen Dejewski, Jody 
Gaspar and Jon Weinstein, 
all of whom visited Spain; 
Nicole Hoffman and Marya 
Bowman, who traveled to 
Germany; and Kara Vichko, 
who spent a year in En- 
gland. Most students spend 
a semester in the foreign 

country of their choice, 
during which they attend 
classes and participate in 
campus activities, travel 
and learn more about the 
country. Some students 
have stayed to do summer 
internships as well. 

In order to be prepared 
to go abroad, participants 
spend considerable time 
studying the country they 
plan to visit, including 
learning the culture and 
language. Some students 
are international business 
majors, who are required to 
spend a semester abroad, 
but students from other 
majors participate as well. 

If you've ever considered 
going abroad, many of those 
who have already par- 
ticpated would affirm that 
you should definitely go for 
it. They feel it was one of 
the best experiences of their

Special Occasions 

They're not just ordinary week- 
ends, they're the weekends when 
dedicated members of the college 
community rise to the occasion and 
bring us the very special events of 
the year. 

Whether it's bounce boxing in 
the raquetball courts on a rainy 
Homecoming weekend or the deli- 
cious food and the many activities of 
the International Fest, the events 
serve as a release for students from 
work and classes and are a vital part 
of college life. After all, what would 
E-town be without T.G.I.S. weekend, 
the Junior-Senior and the savory 
Thanksgiving Day dinner? 

With each year comes new 
special events, and this year was no 
exception. From the excitment and 
controversy of presidential candidate 
Bob Dole's visit to campus to the 
inauguration of President Long, 
these new special events will never 
be forgotten. 

From the very first special 
event of the freshman activities to 
the very last event of the year- 
graduation, the best things about 
them are the friendships and memo- 
ries that form in four very short

Once again the freshmen "get used to 
the fear" on the annual freshmen 

r jootstepsto2000 

Few freshmen will forget the mo- 
ment when they said goodbye to their 
parents and the initial feelings they 
had their first few days of college. 
With all of the various activities 
planned for the freshmen, there was 
one emotion that was hard to feel: 

During the first three days of orien- 
tation the freshmen got to know one 
another at the numerous activities. 
Events such as the freshmen dance, 
peer group meetings and the candle- 
light induction ceremony acted as only 
a few of these exciting activities. 

The freshmen walk served as one 
of the highlights of the weekend for 
both freshmen and upperclassmen. 
This one mile ice-breaker allows just 
about every freshman to meet the oth- 
ers, whether it be by asking the color 
of their underwear or riding their back 
up to the front of the line. Although 
embarrassing at the time, the fresh- 
men walk is considered by many as 
one of the most memorable events of 
the freshman year. 

The exhausting orientation week- 
end ended at the president's house 
where students sat with new friends 
and enjoyed a delicious dessert.

This year's Thank God 
It's Fall weekend was 
vastly different from 
those of past years. The 
APB-sponsored weekend 
has traditionally been a 
folk festival, but it was 
changed this year to a 
carnival theme. 

TGIF kicked off with 
the first annual Date 
Auction on Friday night. 
Various clubs and organi- 
zations then set up 
booths for an afternoon of 
carnival games on Satur- 
day, ranging from a ping- 
pong toss to "pie an R.A." 
This TGIF weekend will 
serve as a foundation for 
the coming years. APB's 
Special Events chair 
Missy Grey believes that 
"although rain dampened 
some of the excitement 
for the weekend, it did 
not diminish APB's 
excitement about the 
possibilities of the new 
carnival theme!"

Politics at TL-^Toivn 

Pouring rain didn't dampen any- 
one's spirits on October 2, 1996 as Bob 
Dole held a political rally in Thompson 
Gymnasium. Approximately 3,000 
people from the college and commu- 
nity waited in a line that extended to 
the Admissions building to hear the 
Republican presidential hopeful speak. 

Before the rally Dole visited a sim- 
ulated Occupational Therapy class- 
room where students demonstrated an 
activity with the use of adaptive 
equipment, showing Dole how people 
function independently with a disabil- 

Junior Melissa DiSanto introduced 
Governor Tom Ridge, who asserted 
that we "need leadership in the White 
House." Ridge, accompanied on stage 
by various Pennsylvania legislators, 
introduced Dole, who began by wel- 
coming the crowd to a "retirement 
party for Bill Clinton." Dole went on 
to speak about his proposed 15% tax 
cut and school choice. 

The excitement on campus couldn't 
be matched that day for Republicans 
and Democrats alike. The rally gave 
most students a once-in-a-lifetime 
opportunity to see politics reach out to 
our school and our community.

A Time to Qive 

E-town students showed off their 
caring spirit in the fall with the 
annual Into the Streets event. Into 
the Streets is a day set aside for 
students to give something back to the 
school and local community. The 
festivities began Friday evening with a 
rally to get everyone in the spirit for 
their tasks the next day. It was also a 
great time to show off the latest Into 
the Streets t-shirt! 

Bright and early on October 12th 
the action began. Many of E-town's 
clubs banded together to accomplish 
various goals. Some of the projects 
this year included painting the local 
library, teaching and playing with 
children and even helping to build a 
house for a needy family. At the end of 
the day, volunteers shared their 
accomplishments at a picnic dedicated 
to them. 

All were glad to have lent their 
efforts to the benefit of others. Hope- 
fully students will meet the Into the 
Streets challenge as they continue 
life's journey: Do not just help out for a 
day, but for a lifetime.

ceremony installing President Long. 
The campus community welcomed 
President Long and his wife, Betty, 
with open arms since their arrival in 
the summer, and they have done the 
same, first by welcoming freshmen to 
their home for dessert during the 
freshmen activities early in the 
semester, and then during Inaugural 
Week to the entire student body for 
student entertainment and refresh- 

The week was filled with special 
events, ranging from speakers to an E- 
town Through the Years breakfast, 
where stduents dressed in period 
clothing and greeted guests, to a 
display of congratulatory wishes for 
Dr. Long. 

Students actually looked forward to 
this event, finding a new respect for 
this president who eats in the caf with 
us, remembers our names and actually 
keeps his office door open to us, as 
opposed to just saying he will.

Ciao Scapino! 

Each semester students and faculty 
of Elizabethtown College work together 
to present a play to the college commu- 
nity. This fall's play, Scapino, filled 
with off-the-wall comedy and wacky 
action, brought roars of laughter to 
audiences for two weekends in Novem- 

Kevin Urban starred in the role 
of Scapino. In far-too-simplified terms, 
the play is one about arranged mar- 
riages. When two men, Octavio (played 
by John Yeomans) and Leandro (played 
by Nathan Troutman), go to Scapino 
for a way out of their troubles, the fun 
begins— for the audience, that is. The 
most humorous part of it all is that 
Octavio is in love with someone else 
and therefore trying to get out of his 
arranged marriage to Geonte's daugh- 
ter (played by Kelly Calnon). Only, the 
woman he actually loves is Calnon's 
character-he just doesn't realize it. 

As usual, the students' perfor- 
mances were quite remarkable, and 
anyone who missed the show should 
mark their calendar in advance for the 
next chance they have to see their 
fellow students show off their talent on 
stage. It's sure to be anything but a

The One Acts Festival 
gives students a chance 
to show off their talents— 
both on stage and behind 
the scenes. One Acts are 
student-directed, pro- 
duced and starred in. 

This year's perfor- 
mances really enter- 
tained audiences. John 
Yeomans directed "The 
Robin Thomas Theories," 
about a man and a 
woman, both named 
Robin Thomas, who meet 
in a dentist's office 
waiting room, which 
proved to be an audience 

The One Acts give 
audiences a first-hand 
look at the talent pos- 
sessed by the students 
here at E-town. Anyone 
who missed this year's 
performance should make 
a point to check out next 
year's. They seem to only 
get better each year.

This year brought the

what is now Family 
Weekend, to accomodate 
the requests of many 
students and their 
families. Rather than a 
separate Siblings' Week- 
end, now E-town stu- 
dents get a double dose of 
the family medicine, all 
in one weekend. For 
many students, the 
change came in name 
only, as their entire 
families have ventured 
to E-town before. 

No matter what the 
weekend is called on the 
calendar, though, what it 
amounts to is a good time 
for E-town students, often 
a chance to get off cam-

E-town students once

Among the other 
traditions include the 
serving of the food by the

professors serve students, 
but student workers also 
gave their time to serve 
their fellow students.

one of relaxation with 
close friends. Students 
gave thanks and enjoyed

traditional Christmas

the suits and ladies bring

Winter Wonderland 
offers both couples and 
groups of friends a good 
time with a mix of dance 
music and slow songs. 
Even Santa makes an 
appearance at Winter 
Wonderland to pose for 
pictures with students. 

RHA's brilliant idea to 
have the "cost" of admis- 
sion be a canned good to 
be donated to the hungry 
hasn't deterred anyone 
away from the dance. As 
always, the dance floor 
was packed. It seems as 
if the entire campus 
attends the dance, which 
always proves to be a 
good time.

biggest and Best 
International Jest yet 

Anyone who attended an event 
could attest to the fact that much ef- 
fort was put into this year's Interna- 
tional Fest, held from March 17th 
through the 24th. This year's theme, 
"Your Wings to the World," showcased 
many special events throughout the 
week, some traditional (as in, from the 
previous International Fests) and 
some were new and unique to this 
year. For example, the international 
coffee house is an event normally held 
during this week, and this year was no 

Several interesting new events 
were added to this year's schedule, 
though, most notably, the main attrac- 
tion: ETHNIC MAN. Teja Arboleda, 
self-dubbed as Ethnic Man because of 
his unique multi-cultural heritage, 
entertained the campus community 
Saturday evening. Ethnic Man's 
reputation preceded him as an Emmy- 
award winning writer, actor, comic and 
public speaker— and he certainly 
deserves that tremendous reputation. 

Hats off to those who organized, 
and those who attended, the events of 
this year's International Fest— it just 
gets better every year!

International Fest O J. 

You'd never know cast members 
were exhausted from the long 
hours spent rehearsing for the 
performance by the smiles on their 
faces here. 

Unique Show 
(Draws Crowds 

The alumni theatre was packed for 
the performances of the spring play, 
Dylan Thomas' "Under Milk Wood." 
Originally designed to be a radio play 
with voices only but redesigned by our 
own theatre department with a sort of 
interactive appeal, additional cast 
members, when not on stage, actually 
sat as audience members. This was 
certainly one of the high points of this 
year's production. 

The show is the story of a dysfunc- 
tional Welsh fishing town, told 
through the eyes (at least in our 
version) of two voices, provided by 
Miriam Zucker and John Yeomans. 
Via these voices, the audience was 
brought into the lives of these towns- 
people while they sleep one night. 
Night turns into day as the lives of the 
townspeople take shape. Several witty 
lines were executed perfectly by the 
cast although the performance was 
primarily not a comedy. 

Audiences agree that having 
characters actually sitting in the 
audience with them was a particularly 
nice feature of our cast's performance. 
-Laura D'Aguanno 

With dramatic performances, 
Sarah Cropley and Saul Passe let 
their characters take over. 

All eyes are on the accused as a 
townsman empties his pockets for 
the crowd surrounding him. 

Although in the play the charac- 
ters' lives are dysfunctional, off 
stage, cast members are great 
friends-and also quite normal. 

John Yeomans' seemingly effort- 
less performance as one of the 
play's "voices," providing commen- 
tary into the lives of Nathan 
Troutman's-and others'-char- 
acters, made the show truly

Saving the (Best 
for Last 

Juniors and seniors break out of 
their jeans-and-tee-shirt molds for this 
special night, and this year's formal 
was no exception. Dresses were 
bought and suits were ironed as up- 
perclassmen prepared for one of the 
most memorable nights of their college 

The night kicked off with cocktails 
and then dinner, followed by dancing. 
Some students and their dates 
changed clothes before the dancing 
began so they would be more comfort- 
able (everybody remembers Prom 
night in high school, being stuck in 
fancy duds all night and not able to 
move!!). One student remarked, "This 
is how you tell the serious dancers 
with those here just to be here. The 
serious dancers have lost the fancy 
clothes already-and the music hasn't 
even started!" 

Whether there to dance or there to 
mingle, to be with friends or to be with 
a significant other, everyone who 
attended this year's Junior-Senior will 
agree that it was indeed a night to 
remember— a special time to spend 
with those close to you as graduation

%ain on our Parade 

The most anticipated weekend on 
campus has once again come and gone, 
and it did not disappoint. The Para- 
dise Island theme unfortunately got 
lost in the poor weather conditions, 
but it was still a great time for the 
student body. 

The weekend kicked off Thursday 
night with the hilarious return of 
hypnotist Michael Anthony. He used 
his skills to poke fun at about twenty 
E-town students, most memorably Rob 
Smith, who periodically thought he 
was Tarzan. 

Friday night brought the sounds of 
Solution A.D. and Buffalo Tom to our 
own Thompson Gymnasium. Both 
bands put on spectacular perfor- 
mances, to the delight of the audience, 
many of whom knew little about the 
bands before the concert. 

Saturday's events were forced 
inside due to the weather. The much- 
awaited Battle of the Air Bands did 
not disappoint anyone, and it was 
followed by the Roommate Game and 
Lazer Tag. 

The weekend came to a grinding 
halt Sunday night with a fireworks 
display before students returned to 
the reality of the end of semester

Our Last Jiurrah 

Finals are over, but seniors 
aren't headed home for the summer 
or off to a new job— not yet anyway. 
With just one week remaining until 
graduation, seniors wanted to make 
the most of it. 

Many seniors packed up the car 
and gathered their friends for a trip 
to the beach. Sun, sand and surf 
sure beat studying for exams and 
writing papers! Other seniors head- 
ed home, or elsewhere, to set up job 
interviews and apartment hunt for 
post-graduation. Still others who 
remained on campus, either to work 
or just spend time with friends. 

By Thursday, though, seniors 
were back on campus for a dinner 
held at President and Mrs. Long's 
house. After four years, seniors were 
treated to the good stuff: a cham- 
pagne toast (out of real glasses, at 

Friday was spent at graduation 
practice, a class barbecue and

beautiful candle-lighting ceremony. 
Seniors couldn't believe the week 
went by so quickly. Fortunately, the 
memories won't fade as quickly as 
the time passed.

they both learned of the value of 
helping those less fortunate.

—And Stay Away 

The morning of May 17th looked 
dreary as seniors woke up and 
looked out their windows, hoping for 
sunshine and dry skies. It had 
rained on Homecoming, it had 
rained during T. G.I. S., and we were 
losing hope that it wouldn't rain on 
graduation day. And it did. Fortu- 
nately, though, the downpour only 
lasted a few moments, and it hap- 
pened while the seniors were inside 
lining up (unfortunately, our fami- 
lies were not— sorry about that, 
Mom and Dad). 

As the Class of 1997 slowly 
marched through the Dell to the 
tune of Pomp and Circumstance, 
though, the sun was shining. The 
ceremony was an emotional one for 
many, as Dean Crocker said good- 
bye to the Class of 1997 and the 
College. Speaker Joseph Adams 
gave the seniors some valuable ad- 
vice about building a career: when 
offered that first job, take it. It will 
be an unvaluable learning experi- 
ence if nothing else. 

Cameras flashed, classmates 
hugged, parents cried and the day 
was nothing but a huge success. 
-Jodi Brandon 

Scott Ressler listens intently to the 
words of the graduation speakers, 
hoping for some words of wisdom 
as he prepares to step out into the 
real world.

pleaser, grins and waves to his fans

Speaker Judge Joseph Adams gave

advice concerning that illusive first 
job: "TAKE THE JOB!" 

Class President Dan Jones spoke 
inspiring words to his classmates 
about their future endeavors. 



President Long displays the check

Rising Toward Tomorrow 

Four years ago, when the class of 
1997 first put pencil to paper at 
registration and foot to pavement at 
the freshmen walk, senior year 
seemed far away. Now the students 
who worried about missing classes, 
missing parties and missing high 
school friends are ready to take 
another step toward the real world 
and all of its unfamiliarity. 

These four years of training may 
have gone by too quickly, but they 
have been filled with memories. 
Four years' worth of Homecomings, 
TGIS weekends, dances and unoffi- 
cial gatherings around campus 
highlighted the underclassmen 
years. Then as seniors all the hard 
work payed of with the best lottery 
numbers, 97 Days Till Graduation, 
the Junior-Senior formal and finally 

Now as job interviews are being 
scheduled and graduate school ap- 
plications are being reviewed, mem- 
bers of the class of 1997 can look 
forward to the challenges of their 
futures secure in the knowledge 
that they have made the best of 
their E-town years.

Those school bell days of telling 
tales and biting nails are gone, but in

May your teaching career be as re-

Go out in the world and make a dif-

Rise and Shine 

Sleeping, studying and spending 
time with hallmates are all ways in 
which Elizabethtown students enjoy 
life in a residence hall. As freshmen 
find the laundry room, sophomores, 
juniors and seniors devise new ways 
to arrange study lounges. In the 
meantime, RAs hunt for new and 
imaginative hall programs. 

Each day in a residence hall is a 
chance to meet new faces and form 
stronger connections with friends as 
each building takes on its own per- 
sonality. Founders residents form a 
family, Myer and Preservation resi- 
dents always get to the caf on time 
and Royer and Schlosser girls brave 
the weather to trek across the Dell 
to classes. Ober and Brinser resi- 
dents are the quickest to turn up 
the music and open their windows 
to let in the fresh spring air. 

Over a thousand students reside 
in the residence halls, all of whom 
find a variety of ways to rise to the 
occasions of dorm life. Some order a 
pizza at midnight while sleeping 
residents fill the next dorm over. As 
they gather in lounges and neigh- 
bors' rooms, residents of each dorm 
build a unique and exciting living

Joe Godfrey takes a moment to set up his 
speakers for the famous ten minutes at

Brinser boys have "been enjoying building-wide programs 
this year," according to Shane Serpico and other residents. 
Exciting movie nights, dozens of wings from the Roost and 
pizza parties were well-received by many of the residents. 
Rising to educate themselves about current social and 
health issues, these students utilized Wellness Peer Educa- 
tors from the Health Center for informative discussions 
concerning several important topics. Brinser is also 
stereotypically the number-one place to catch up on sports 
teams. Brinser is where many team members build their 
strong friendships that bond them as teammates and not 
merely individuals who share a field. On the not-so-serious 
side, this dorm continues to love and be known for good- 
natured fun. That, of course, is one of the main reasons 
why Brinser is, in the jovial eyes of Matt Antoline, "easily 
the most popular dorm on campus." Overall, finding time 
for work, friends and fun are the pasttimes of Brinser

As the largest of E-town's residence halls, Founders rises 
to the occasion of co-ed dorm life on the hill above 
Brinser Field. Composed of four buildings, much creativ- 
ity, variety and style all exude from its many doors. Fun 
and unique hall programs included a fondue "icebreaker" 
party at the beginning of the year, trips to M&M Mars, 
Crayola Crayons and the Ghosts of Gettysburg, a dorm- 
wide barbecue and a sponsored outing to New York City. 
The diversity of such activities is, perhaps, a reflection of 
the wide variety of students who love to call Founders 
their "home away from home." Another positive aspect of 
Founders, as noted by Tom Sofield, is that it grants 
students the opportunity to "acquire many new friend- 
ships due to its diverse setup." Founders' square con- 
figuration and many lounges give students numerous 
places to interact. In agreement, Matt Ellis mentioned, 
"Founders is good because there are a lot of different 
people, and the co-ed environment makes it a more 
enriching living place." Each floor has a personality of 
its own that sets it apart, yet each one also blends well 
with the others, truly making Founders residents a

As one of two co-ed residence halls, Ober has found itself to 
be the favorite dorm of many students on E-towns campus. 
Its central location and reputation for fun are two of the 
main reasons for Ober's popularity. It is almost the first 
residence hall to fill up at room selection, and this year was 
no exception. Some of the events and activities that resi- 
dents enjoyed this year are ghost-o-grams and a Ghosts of 
Gettysburg trip where students braved the tales and 
stories of the Gettysburg area in October. A condom party 
and stress ball-making programs held at other times 
during the year offered Ober residents opportunities to 
unwind, educate themselves and have fun all at the same 
time. An ice cream social held before finals entertained 
many students, and some students relaxed with a game of 
pool or a ping-pong match. Through these and other 
events, Ober occupants have risen to the occasion and made 
new friendships while strengthening old ones. After all, 
living among amigos and having "great neighbors" is a big 
plus according to residents Jamie Wiedenhafer and Dana

Phone calls and e-mail are the Saturday 
routine for Angie Kinser and Karen Cashin. 

From Italian dinner nights to ice cream socials, this resi- 
dence hall has really been cooking. Myer occupant Susie 
Beiler says she likes this dorm because "in the winter you 
don't have to go outside to get to the caf." This year other 
residents have broken out of their molds by becoming 
involved in many campus activities, such as participating 
in prepartory activities surrounding Bob Dole's visit to E- 
town. Taking time to care for one's physical well-being has 
also been a focus. Makeovers and lessons on proper skin 
care from Mary Kay representatives and visits from a 
professional masseuse are just two examples of such 
programs. There are many things to do with hallmates in 
Myer, such as trick or treating, which was really fun, 
according to Chani Bergen.

forever. Residents have appreciated the benefits that come 
with the single-room dormitory. As Lindsey Decker said, 
"Although we live alone, we are all pretty good friends. It's 
the best of both worlds." Many students will miss Preser- 
vation and hope that a new building will soon take its 
place. Nikole Yuninger pointed out, "I hope they will 
replace it with something else to accomodate the demand 
for single housing."

By changing its image from the "nunnery" to the "funnery," 
the ladies of Royer are rising to the occasion. Entertaining 
activities such as tracing the body of one's roommate, 
scribbling favorite phrases on quote boards and tie-dying 
have satisfied the playful sides of many Royer residents. 
"The people are just hysterical. You could be in the room of 
someone you don't even know well and you'll have fun," 
noted resident Jenn Wilson. Rollerskating, hiking and 
visiting seasonal attractions are a few of the unique out- 
ings made by various halls. With these types of agendas, 
the traditional nickname will be put to rest very soon. 
Sophomore Cathy Stine wonders, "Who started calling it 
the nunnery anyway? Anyone who visits 3-South knows 
what fun it is!"

Staff Divider 


The guiding force. The academic 
architects. The professional motiva- 
tional staff. The E-town proletariat. 
The collective formerly known as 
"The Faculty." 

Here at E-town, there is more to 
the staff than just the faculty men- 
tors and friends who help us to grow 
within the classroom setting. The 
administration spends their time 
creating and refining each element 
of the college experience so that we 
will not only leave E-town with good 
memories but with confidence in our 
futures as well. The campus staff 
knows that the best academic cur- 
riculum and the most advanced 
facilities in the world are useless if 
students don't feel comfortable in 
their "home away from home." 

These three groups work together 
to enrich the mind, body and soul of 
every student who passes through 
registration each semester. They 
provide our campus with an atmo- 
sphere in which we are not obligated 
to attend classes, but rather where 
we are inspired to learn. Whether 
the loving care is put into grilled 
cheese sandwiches, scholarship fund- 
ing or advising sessions, it is the one 
element which makes E-town a place 
to which we all can come home.

Occasionally Odd 

Every professor has his or her own weird 
teaching habits. By week two you've figured 
them out and by week three they are driving you 
crazy. You anticipate them every time a professor 
opens his mouth. You learn to read his or her 
emotions by how often they use their quirks. 
Sometimes you even catch yourself using them 
outside of class. 

Many of these quirks have become classics 
which will undoubtedly be retired along with the 
professor. Any student can learn to imitate them 
to amuse her friends. Other quirks rise up from 
the professor's personality for a one-time-only 
appearence and are never seen again, although 
they are talked about for years to come. 

We've interrogated students from all majors 
and compiled a list of the finest oddities to grace 
the lecture halls of Elizabethtown College. See if 
you can guess which prof originated which quirk.

Rising to Victory 

Elizabethtown College has 
always been known for its excel- 
lence both inside the classroom 
and out. This past year, the 
Elizabethtown sports' teams up- 
held this tradition of excellence 
with many record-setting seasons 
and playoff bids. Hard work and 
dedication by the players and 
skillful mentoring by the coaching 
staffs allowed all the teams to rise 
to the occasion against their oppo- 

The support that the teams 
experienced this year from their 
fans was definitely a contributing 
factor in their successes. From 
the fans throwing marshmallows 
on the sidelines of the field to the 
bleachers filled with cheering fans 
at the courts, supporters proved to 
be a great source of energy for the 
teams. Confidently and proudly, 
Elizabethtown athletes and fans 
joined together to leave their mark 
in college history.

Determined and un-

the only way to describe 
E-town's 1996 cross 
country harriers as they 
worked through a tough 
season to achieve win- 
ning records for both the 
men's and women's 
teams. Despite some 
disappointing losses, the 
team members showed 
themsleves strong in 
spirit and in body, and 
they proved they have 
what it takes to be 

The men's team, 

overcoming the fact that 
many of its members 
were young and inexperi- 
enced, turned heads with 
its 5-4 record, a dramatic 
improvement over last 
year's. Returning senior 
veteran Bruce Hansen 
served as a strong base 
for the men's team. From 
the beginning, the men 
had a great deal of 
optimism, which mani- 
fested itself in their 
progressive showings 
throughout the season. 

The women, also 
motivated for a great 

season, demonstrated 
true team work and 
togetherness. Despite 
the loss of senior Mindy 
Enterline, one of the 
MAC's best runners, due 
to injury, the team 
pushed itself to the limit. 

The cross country 
teams set their focus on 
the finish line, rather 
than injuries and defeats, 
and came through trium- 
phantly, giving them 
more than just winning

Kauffman. Senior co- 
captains Maggie Nelis 
and Amanda Lingle 
provided the necessary 
leadership for the team 
this season. Nelis ended 

the season by setting a 
school record of 38 assists 
for the season, helping 
her to achieve MAC All- 
Star status. Rising star 
freshman Anne Hustinx, 
a foreign exchange 
student from Holland, 
provided scoring for the 
team this season as well. 
Defense also proved to 
be a major part of the 
team's success. Oppo- 
nents had a difficult time 
scoring against the Blue 
Jays' strong backfield, 
and junior Alison 
B runner provided a 
particularly outstanding 
performance for the 
season in goal. With an 

impressive number of 
shutouts, the team's 
defense supported the 
team and carried it 
through the year. 

Although the Blue 
Jays did not make the 
playoffs this season, their 
valient efforts and great 
season deserve congratu- 
lations. The team worked 
hard, and everyone is 
looking forward to next 
season, when many of 
this year's young talent 
will be returning.

Blue Jays Regain MAC Title 

The 1996 season 
proved to be a good one 
for the Blue Jay soccer 
team. An outstanding 
effort led the Jays to an 
impressive 18-2-2 regular 
season record. The Jays 
began the season by 
reclaiming their title in 
the Blue Jay Classic and 
continued with one 
success after another, 
including big wins over 
rivals Messiah and 

As the Blue Jays 
entered the MAC play- 
offs, they dominated 
Wilkes in the semi-finals 

and came together as a 
team to beat Scranton in 
the final. With the MAC 
championship under 
their belt, the men turn- 
ed their concentration to 
the NCAA tournament. 
Two great efforts paid off 
with wins in the first and 
second rounds, which led 
the Jays to the regional 
final versus Bethany 
College. Despite a tough 
loss in the final, which 
shattered the Blue Jays' 
hopes of a national 
championship, the Jays 
ended their season with 
the MAC championship. 

Coach Skip Roderick 
received attention in 
USA Today for his 
success as the E-town 
College soccer coach. 

The 1996 Blue Jays 
were led by senior tri- 
captains Mark Cham- 
bers, Bryan Green and 
Jason Hoy. The future 
looks bright for the Blue 
Jays in 1997 with the 
return of goalkeeper 
Chris Hepler and other 
'96 starters.

Booters Have Dream Season 

After a taste of the 
post-season in '95, the 
Lady Jays were deter- 
mined to make this sea- 
son successful. With a 
quick 4-0-1 start, the 
booters set the pace for 
the winning season they 
would have in front of 
them. The team finished 
the season with an 
impressive 18-2-2 record, 
but that is just the 

The season proved to 
be one of record-breaking 
for the women's soccer 
team. The ladies were 
recognized for most of the 

season in the national 
rankings and pulled off 
key wins to gain a home- 
field advantage in the 
playoffs. A record num- 
ber of twelve shutouts, 
eighteen wins and an 
undefeated season in the 
conference will be added 
to the record books for 
this Blue Jay team. 
Perhaps the biggest 
accomplishment of all, 
however, was that the 
team brought home the 
first-ever MAC crown in 
women's soccer history. 
Senior captain Corie 
Stover provided strong 

leadership to a relatviely 
young team. Offensively 
the team was strong and 
was able to score when 
the team most needed it. 
Defense proved to be an 
asset as well, recording 
twelve shutouts as well 
as allowing just eleven 
goals in 22 games. 

The season came to a 
disappointing end with 
the team not receiving an 
invitation to the NCAA 
tournament. With only 
two seniors graduating, 
though, next year's team 
will be one to watch.

Netters Shine In Triumph 

The 1996 Women's 
Tennis team proved to be 
a strong force in the 
Commonwealth League 
this season. Under the 
leadership of senior 
Lottie Smith, the Netters 
ended the regular season 
9-4 overall and 6-1 in the 
Commonwealth League. 
Dedication and teamwork 
alone allowed the team to 
achieve great success and 
make it to the playoffs. 

Although the Blue 
Jays lost their number 
one and two players from 
the 1995 team, everyone 

anticipated a great 
season. Many players 
improved their games 
and proved to be great 
assets to the team. 

Early in the season, 
guided by coach Kathy 
Montgomery, entering 
her fifth season as coach, 
the team had to battle 
the bad weather. How- 
ever, after a few games 
the players became 
comfortable and pulled 
out five straight wins 
working their way to a 
second place finish. 

Although many 

doubles pairs and indi- 
viduals made it into the 
postseason, it proved to 
be short for the Blue 
Jays. The team made it 
to the semifinals, and Jen 
Timmins and Mary 
Boebel were invited to 
the individual competi- 
tion. Doubles competi- 
tion saw pairs Nina

Spikers Have Respectable Season ^^ 

Coach Bill Helm and 
the Elizabethtown Blue 
Jay Volleyball team 
hoped to have a strong 
season, beat Juniata, and 
make it to the playoffs. 
With a wealth of talent 
and returning starters, 
senior Jodi Hillegass and 
juniors Liz Bishard, 
Tracy Eck, and Kim 
Baney these seemed to be 
attainable goals. After 
winning the Mizuno 
challege, and several 
other matches early in 
the season, these hopes 
increased. The Spikers 

ended the season with a 
showing of 24- 1 1 and a 
Middle Atlantic Confer- 
ence record of 4-2. 

The team was led by 
co-captains Hillegass and 
Bishard. Hillegass 
became the first Blue Jay 
to break the 1,000 career 
digs mark. Bishard 
followed her example, 
also reaching the 1,000 
career digs mark. 
Hillegass and Bishard 
also led the team on the 
offensive front. Other 
offensive stars were 
sophomore setter Kristen 

Maguire, leading in 
assists, and junior middle 
blocker Jess Fickett. 

The Spikers began 
their season by racing to a 
7-0 start. The volleyball 
team may not have made 
it to post-season play, but 
they were up against 
tough competition, includ- 
ing long time rival 
Juniata. With only two 
seniors graduating, the 
experience level of the 
team will be high next 
season, leading to aspira- 
tions of bringing home the 
MAC title.

Jays Earn Rightful Recognition 

Coach Schlosser and 
the Men's Basketball 
team began the season 
with two objectives: to 
make it to the playoffs 
and to avenge a season- 
ending loss to Lycoming 
which knocked the team 
out of last year's playoffs 
in the first round. With 
all of last year's players 
returning, these goals 
were within the team's 
reach. The Jays finished 
the season 17-9, after 
accomplishing both of 
their goals. 

Tri-captains Andy 

Burkholder, Larry Bellew 
and Ryan Billet, along 
with Brad Karli and 
Jesse Kulp, led the team 
to an outstanding 6-0 
start. Billet proved to be 
the team standout, 
garnishing several 
honors, including First 
Team MAC All Star, and 
becoming the 25th 
member of E-town's 1,000 
point club, all the while 
suffering a recurring 
ankle injury. 

The Jays achieved 
both of their goals on the 
same night. The first 

round seemed like deja- 
vu to the team— the same 
team members playing 
Lycoming on the same 
night as the previous 
year. Only this year, the 
Blue Jays came out 
victorious. The next 
game would be against 
Widener, and unfortu- 
nately the Jays' season 
ended there. 

Coach Schlosser 
summed the season up 
best by calling it "satisfy- 
ing." Just about everyone 
would have to agree.

proved to be a memorable 
one for the Lady Jays

returned from Winter 
Break in the Bahamas 
with plenty of sunshine 
for E-town. The Lady

MAC to win the league 
title, the Lady Jays 

focused their attention on 
the NCAA Tournament. 
Beating Allentown in the 
first round, the team met 
John Hopkins in the 
second round. Although 
they fought hard, they 
lost the game as well as 
their hopes of a national 

The Lady Jays were 
led by head coach Yvonne 
Kauffman and senior 
team captains Tammy 
Herrmann and Jodi 
Hillegass. Add "the big 
three" junior Brenda 
Wessel and Sophomores 

Shauntae Stancil and 
Kim Boback, and it is 
easy to see why the Lady 
Jays were so impressive. 
Despite the loss of the 
sought after National 
title, the future looks 
bright for the Lady Jays. 
The team will lose only 
two seniors this year and 
are left with four return- 
ing starters for next year. 
The 1997-98 Lady Jays 
basketball team will 
definitely be one to watch 
next year.

Batsmen Overcome Challenges 

With a disappointing 
season's end last year, the 
Blue Jays were ready to 
attack this season head 
on. The loss of several 
key players from last 
year's team as well as a 
new coach meant some 
adjustments for this 
year's team. Coach Gary 
Pritchard brought a new 
atmosphere with him to 
this team, and a whole 
new attitude resulted 
from it. His philosophy? 
Motivating his players 
through positive rein- 
forcement and encourage- 
ment. It worked. 

With the experience of 
many returning players, 
the Blue Jays headed off 
the season with an 8-0 
start during their annual 

Spring Break trip to 
Florida for training. The 
team made an impressive 
showing and was anxious 
to get back home to begin 
the season. Under the 
leadership of co-captains 
Dave Cappuccio and 
Drew Wolanin, the team 
was determined to take it 
to the very end: to win 
the MAC title. 

Throughout the entire 
season, the Jays re- 
mained ranked among 
the top five teams in the 
MAC. Late in the season, 
though, injuries and 
fatigue caught up with 
the team, plaguing both 
pitchers as well as 
starting fielders. Other 
players stepped up,

Golfers Aim High 

The 1997 Blue Jay 
golfers were excited for 
the season to begin. 
Wind and rain plagued 
the 1996 season and with 
the start of the 1997 
season, it looked no 
different. The team faced 
many games where they 
had to battle the wind, 
rain and cold weather 
that are not typical of 
April weather. Under the 
direction of seniors Ralph 
Ivory, Kyle Little and 
Larry Bellow, and Coach 
Keith Marks, the team 
set its sights on the MAC 


With such a short 
season, the Jays wanted 
to gain momentum early 
in the season so they 
could gear themselves 
toward the MACs that 
would follow in the 
coming weeks. The team 
started out 2-0 and was 
on its way to an impres- 
sive season. The depth 
and determination of all 
the players fought 
against the harsh 
weather, and the team 
ended the season with an 
overall record of 7-3.

Rising to the Top 

After a disappointing 
1996 season, the 97 Blue 
Jay softball team began 
the year with high hopes: 
making the playoffs. 
After losing several key 
players from last season, 
the team consisted of 
several new leaders. The 
most obvious new leader 
was Coach Barb Shenk, 
who, with the help of 
assistant coach Kevin 
Rossi, took this team to a 
new level. Aggressive 
base play was encouraged 
this season, as well as 
rotating players to play 
more than one position in

Making a slide for the extra 
base, Emily Weibel is safe at 

the field. Changes in the 
lineup from last season 
coupled with this new 
playing style brought a 
whole new mentality to 
the Lady Jays. 

Depth and versatility 
characterized this year's 
team. Seniors Sallie 
Mohr and Jamie Ochs 
and junior Lora Crawford 
all returned from impres- 
sive seasons last year. 
Mohr, along with fresh- 
men Linda Milnes and 
Erin Reynolds, provided 
strong leadership for the 
Jays on the pitching 
mound. A solid defense 

backed up the pitchers in 
many of the close wins 
throughout the season. 

The team battled its 
way through several 
doubleheaders, often 
losing the first game to 
come back and win the 
second. Although the 
playoffs were out of 
reach, team members 
continued to play hard. 

The team ended the 
season with a record of 
18-15 and a sense of 
success, and will be 
prepared for next sea- 
son's journey to the top.

Young Blood with Tough Spirits 

The 1997 Netters began 
this season with a fairly 
young team, the majority 
being freshman. In fact, 
the teams only veteran 
players were co-captains 
senior Ben Smith and 
junior Jon Flood. Their 
experience, with the help 
of third year coach Kathy 
Montgomery, led the 
team through the season 
and got them through 
many of the tough times 
they experienced. De- 
spite the seeming lack of 
college-level experience, 
the team improved 
throughout the season 
and showed great 
progress compared to last 
year's performance. This 
was accomplished in a 
large part by the con- 

tributions of freshmen 
members of the team, 
such as Nate Smith and 
Marius Schlatmann. 

From the beginning, the 
MACs were the team's 
goal, an attainable one 
with the talent the team 
was comprised of. 
Through frustrating 
losses and heartbreaking 
defeats, the team pushed 
on, each time demanding 
a higher level of perfor- 
mance. The team also 
had to battle bad weather 
and sub-freezing tem- 
peratures through much 
of its season. 

Through their per- 
serverance and drive to 
succeed, they acheived 
fourth place in the 
MACs, up from their 

tenth place finish last 
season. The MAC indi- 
vidual tournament saw a 
few faces from E-town as 
well. Freshmen Justin 
Fisher and Brandon 
Yorty represented the 
Blue Jays in single 
competition, and pair 
teams of Flood and 
freshman Scott 
Czerwonka and freshmen 
Smith and Schlatmann 
represented the Jays in 
doubles action. Overall, 
the Netters had a suc- 
cessful season and are 
anxious for next year, 
with all of this year's 
experience under their

Rising Occasion 

How would you describe clubs at 
Elizabethwon College? Well, the 
first thing that comes to mind is 
quantity. There are close to 70 clubs 
at E-town, and they offer a wide 
variety of activities to become in- 
volved in. In this section you can 
catch a glimpse of E-town clubs and 
activities from Accounting and Fi- 
nance to WWEC. 

Freshmen and upperclassmen get 
a chance to become involved very 
easily in the school year. The Activi- 
ties Fair, which is held in the fall, 
gives students a chance to sign up 
for as many clubs as they wish. E- 
town students are often so enthusi- 
astic that they join more activities 
than their schedules allow for! Usu- 
ally students find that being in- 
volved in just a few clubs is enough 
to fill the time left after classes, 
homework and sports. 

After the Activities Fair, clubs 
really get into the swing of things. 
Some major dates for E-town activi- 
ties include Homecoming, Christmas 
tree decorating and the Spring Arts 
Festival. In between these events, 
clubs hold meetings and fundraisers. 
Obviously clubs keep E-town stu- 
dents busy and show that E-town 
College activities rise to the occa-

"Gay or strait, it dosen't 
matter, that is the whole 
point" explaines Dana 
Thomas of Allies. Allies is a 
student run group on 
campus open to all students 
that promotes gay aware- 
ness and acceptance in our 
community. Whether it is 
traveling to the Washington 
D.C. area to see the Aids 
Quilt or sponsoring a 
display of the quilt on 
campus. Missy 
Hockensmith visited the 
quilt while it was on cam- 
pus and "found it to be 
emotional and important in 
that it emphasised the need 
for Aids research and that 
Aids can affect anyone." 
According to Thomas, 

"Allies is opening the minds 
of the college community." 

Allies also brought 
homosexual rights activist 
Craig Dean to campus in 
the Spring to speak about 
current issues. His main 
foucus was gay and Lesbian 
marriages which have 
caught the attention of 
numerous forms of media 
lately as well as being an 
issue within many religious 

Thomas ended by saying 
that "Allies mission is to 
break down the stereotyped 
walls of the community and 
accept people for who they 
are, not what they are."

This was a big year for 
the College Democrats! 
They were preparing for 
Bob Doles appearance at 
Elizabethtown College. 
Dawn Chesterman stated, 
"We were excited about 
Doles arrival at Elizabeth- 
town, but we wanted the 
media to know about the 
democrats on our campus." 

The Democrats major 
goals during this time were 
to organize a rally before 
the Bob Dole speech. They 
made their presence known 
with numerous signs and 

chanting. One of their 
biggest issues that they 
mentioned was Bill 
Clinton's support of educa- 
tion. Members from Victory 
'96 helped the club by 
providing them with souve- 
nirs and signs to support 
Bill Clinton. 

The College Democrats 
also took the time to edu- 
cate their members and 
anyone who would listen on 
a variety of issues 
concearning the campaign.

Jill Weber and Adrienne Keeney 
decide which layout to use for the 
activites section of the Conestogan. 

The Conestogan is 
student-produced each year 
by a staff of approximately 
twenty students. Coverage 
has expanded over the past 
couple eyars to include a 
Student Life section as well 
as more candid pictures. 
The book has been ex- 
panded in both the number 
of pages and in its physical 
size also as more students 
and organizations are being 
photographed. As co-editor 
Jodi Brandon explains, "I'm 
proud to be at the head of 

such a hard-working group of 
people. A lot of hours are put 
into the production of this 
book, and I think the student 
body would agree— I hope 
they would agree-that we've 
made tremendous progress." 
The yearbook is the only 
permanent memory of the 
entire year, and for the size of 
our school and budget the 
staff has, the Conestogan is 
really a quality publication. 
Coverage is constantly on the

Habitat for Humanity 
this year completed a five 
year project that started in 
the infancy of the club. The 
100th campus chapter 
finished their first house on 
East High Street giving a 
family not only a home, but 
hope for a brighter future. 
Of course the house was 
only one small part of the 
organization's year. They 
worked together at various 

other construction sites to help 
build Habitat Homes. 

The club also hosted their 
annual auction which helped 
raise money for a spring break 
trip to Jackson, Tennessee to 
assist the local affiliate in 
building a house along with 
numerous other small projects. 

Overall, Habitat once again 
had a busy, but very successful 
and satisfying year.

The International Club 
has been successful in 
bridging the cultural gap for 
our students. According to 
Raana Rene, president of 
the International Club, it's 
mission is "to make the 
adjustment process easier 
for international students 
coming to Elizabethtown 
College." Another goal of 
the organization is to have 
programs that reflect 
American activities such as 
Basketball games and trips 
to big cities. The third goal 
of the International club is 
attempting to educate 
others about different 
cultures in planning trips to 
restaurants and speakers. 

The International Club 
was again involved in the 
International Fest which 

All decked out in her native garb, 
Raana Meruani displays numerous 
cultural items from Kenya. 

was held from March 17-24. 
Students exhibited various 
displays about their countries. 

Some of the other events 
that members participated in 
were a reception for exchange 
students of area high schools, 
teaching others how to do 
"djing" the dance and organiz- 
ing a fashion show along with 
colors united. 

During homecoming, the 
club could be seen selling flags 
from various countries and 
candy from various countries 
was their fund-raising tactic at 
the International Fest. 

With approximately 120 
members, this club has done 
an excellent job at bringing 
various countries and cultures 
to the Elizabethtown College

According to Bernadette 
Katen, "Our goal is to join 
all Catholics on Campus to 
promote religious awareness 
and community service." 
That is just what they did. 

Not only did they assist 
in holding the Catholic 
Mass every Sunday night 
with music provided, the 
Neuman Club took an active 
role in the building of a teen 
center in E-town starting 
with Into the Streets. That 
night, numerous members 
of the club chaperoned a 
dance for sixth through 
ninth graders at the Eliza- 
bethtown Community 

Incorporating humor into the act, 
Chris Andrade, Joe Godfrey, Kevin 
Gardner and Andy McGraw 
perform along with the rest of 


Katen said "It was great. 
It also is a great idea to try 
and get a teen center built 
since there really isn't 
anywhere for the kids of 
Elizabethtown to gather 
and stay out of trouble." 

Finally, the Neuman 
Club held prayer meetings 
every week to promote faith 
in God. The Neuman Club 
provided a number of 
services to the Catholic 
community. Katen feels, "It 
is important to have faith in 
God and to have people to 
talk to that have the same 
religious values.

The Political Science 
Club is made up of majors 
and minors within the study 
of Political Science, Demo- 
crats and Republicans alike. 
Their goal is not to empha- 
size one party over the 
other; rather it looks at 
issues in a more intellectual 
way, challenging ideas and 
not party affiliations. The 
club also sponsors speakers 

and volunteers at election 
campaigns during election 
years. Members are encour- 
aged to get involved with 
the political system and 
make their voices heard. To 
do this, many members also 
belong to either the College 
Democrats or the College 
Republicans, where parti- 
san politics do take over.

"We're not just Micro- 
fridges!" This years Resi- 
dence Hall Association has 
been working together to 
better resident life. Acting 
as a liaison between the 
residence halls and plant 
operations RHA has been 
bringing improvements to 
each residence hall such as 
new furniture in Founders 
main lounge and a new 
recycling center in Ober. 

But, RHA is never all 
work and no play. In the 
fall RHA sponsored the 
annual Goofy Games. The 

holiday season brought the 
Winter Wonderland Dance. 
This annual semiformal 
dance packed Hershey Hall. 

For T.G.I.S., RHA 
sponsored the scavenger 
hunt and the always popu- 
lar Roommate Game finals. 
Erica Haray, RHA's V.P. of 
Finance said, "RHA had yet 
again another successful 
year. We have many hard 
working, dedicated mem- 
bers who make this organi- 
zation great. I'm just proud 
to be able to be a part of it."

Becoming a human hot dog can 
completely change your views on

participant quickly found out.

WWEC, E-town's student 
managed and operated 
radio station had a great 
year despite a few obstacles. 

Broadcasting from 7:00 
AM to Midnight on week- 
days and 8:00 AM to Mid- 
night on weekends, the DJs 
this year stressed variety 
and reinforced the station 
motto, being the true 
"Sound of Elizabethtown." 

From Chris Turners new 
alternative on Sunday night 
to Ed Burke's classic rock 
Wednesday afternoon to 
Dana Thomas' variety show, 
WWEC never ceased to 
entertain the community. 
Senior Maria Ciccarella, 
WWEC's DJ director com- 
mented "there were over 55 
DJs who were very active. 
Some had performers come 
on their show. The DJs 
followed formats which 
made it fun for listeners."

Current Events 

This past year has certainly been one for the 
record books-both positively and negatively. 
Celebrations were often marked by tragedy, such as 
the Olympic bombing, despite their success. Olym- 
pic athletes rose to the occasion, though, despite 
the disaster, and made the Olympics a memorable 

In this election year, President Clinton rose to 
Bob Dole's challenge and was reelected for a second 
term— the first incumbent Democrat since FDR in 
1944 to be reelected. Bob Dole based his platform 
on a 15% tax cut and family values, and he person- 
ally stopped for a campaign rally here at the 
College in October. 

The world of athletics met the challenges of this 
monumental year as well. Along with the success 
of American Olympic athlets in Atlanta, golfer 
Tiger Woods stormed onto the PGA scene, barely 
out of his teenage years. More traditionally, the 
Green Bay Packers won the Supoerbowl over the 
New England Patriots, and the Yankees beat the 
Atlanta Braves in six games for the World Serieos 

All around the country American hearts broke in 
sympathy for the vitims of TWA Flight 800, the 
California wildfires and Hurricane Hortense which 
seemed to take control of our nation. Mother 
Nature finally eased up and allowed us all to 
breathe a sigh fo relief and appreciate good times, 
such as astronaut Shannon Lucid's return to Earth 
after a record six months in space.

The women's basketball team had quite a 
successful season, and had quite a fol- 
lowing no matter where they traveled by 
the Jay Crew, the official team fan club. 

Homecoming was a huge success despite 
the poor weather-Charlie Grimes and 
Tara Smith sure didn't mind, anyway! 

The graduating class listens intently, 
anxiously awaiting the awarding of the 
diplomas and the life that follows college. 

Phalanx performances are no longer such 
a rare treat, as the group's popularity has 
caused it to become more available for 
crowd-pleasing performances.

Jodi Brandon and Craig Bertz, Co-Editors-in-Chief, would like to 
thank the following people for their help with the 1996-1997 
Conestogan : 

*Ed Patrick, our Taylor Publishing Company representative, for 
keeping us on track while providing the humor we needed to 
make it (P.S. Dallas was great-thanks!! And we'll never forget 
the Penn State graduation story!) 

*Tamara Gillis, our advisor, for helping us with budget and 
other problems over the last two years and allowing us to produce 
the kinds of books we wanted 

*This year's editors and staff, particularly Josh Mackley who 
went well beyond his AP Comm assignments each week, for 
putting in countless hours of work 

*A11 those students who wrote sidebars for the Student 
Life section of the book— thanks for your input

Rising to the Future 

As the seniors leave Elizabeth- 
town College, there is no doubt 
that the members of the class of 
1997 will rise to meet the chal- 
lenges in the next chapters of their 
lives. This year has given not only 
seniors, but the entire campus 
community as well, the opportu- 
nity to rise to the occasion. We 
opened our campus to Republican 
presidential hopeful Bob Dole for a 
political rally, providing volunteer 
support and community involve- 
ment, for example. 

We also experienced a few 
losses this year, including the de- 
parture of both Provost Ritsch and 
Dean Crocker, as well as several 
other members of the College staff. 
We must look upon these losses as 
opportunitues for both the College 
and these members of our commu- 
nity who have spent endless time, 
effort and energy for the well- 
being of the students and staff of 

As we prepare for next year, we 
know that seniors and underclass- 
men alike will continue to rise to 
the occasion and tackle whatever 
obstacles we encounter in our 
paths to the future.

When the weather warms up, E- 
town's campus seems to be flocked 
with students taking advantage of 
the nice weather. Many friends 
found taking a walk allowed them 
to enjoy the pleasant surroundings 
while catching up with a friend. 

Many students will miss the often- 
peaceful nature the senior quads 
had to offer to balance the hectic 
daily routines of their lives, away 
from campus yet still a part of it. 

A new Dean of College Life will 
assume Dean Crocker's position in 
the fall as he moves on to the next 
stage of his life. He will be greatly 
missed by students and staff alike.
